Paris - French police on Wednesday arrested Rwandan doctor Eugene Rwamucyo for allegedly taking part in the 1994 genocide, judicial officials said.

Rwamucyo, who last month was dismissed from his hospital post in northern France, is accused by Kigali of planning atrocities in the Butare region of southern Rwanda.

He was on an Interpol watch list and wanted in Paris in connection with a complaint filed by genocide victims for crimes against humanity.

The doctor, aged in his 50s, was detained in Sannois, north of Paris, after attending the funeral of another Rwandan convicted of war crimes by the Tanzania-based international tribunal.
